You will work with Technical Animators, Riggers, The Mocap Team, and other Gameplay programmers to define and extend our in-game Animation Systems.

Who we are

The Game Tech team is responsible for our in-house animation solution. This consists of a hierarchical blend tree/state machine and code generation system to produce native C++ code. We build both the run-time system as well as the authoring tool comparable to the Unreal Animation Blueprint editor. We also work on other areas like facial animation, procedural animation, animation compression/streaming and physics.

What you'll do

  • You will research, design, build and extend the run-time animation systems listed above.
  • Depending on your experience and preference, you will also work on expanding our animation tools UI.
  • You will help artists by analyzing their work(flow), suggesting improvements, and building the systems needed to achieve their vision.
  • You will profile and optimize the performance of the systems you build.

Who you are

  • You have strong communication skills and a good command of the English language.
  • You have a helpful, solution-oriented attitude.
  • You love to R&D and learn new things.
  • You are an experienced C++ programmer and care about writing readable and maintainable code.
  • You have a good understanding of 3D math.
  • You have experience with skeletal animation systems.


  • You have experience with machine learning.
  • You have experience with animation authoring tools like Maya.

  • A C++ code sample that showcases your programming skills. Candidates that cannot show code samples should indicate this and we can discuss alternatives.
